Volcanoes vs Jaguars

GROS ISLET, St Lucia, CMC – Left-hander Vishaul Singh turned the page on his recent ordinary form for West Indies A by stroking his seventh first class hundred, as three-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars snatched the advantage on day two of their second round encounter against Windward Islands Volcanoes.

The visitors piled up 357 in their first innings on Friday at the Darren Sammy Cricket Ground to lead Volcanoes by 206 runs, with Vishaul gathering a typically controlled 119 and wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble missing out on three figures with 90.

Sherfane Rutherford, batting at number eight, smashed an entertaining 51.

Left-arm seamer Obed McCoy grabbed three for 56 on first class debut while off-spinners Tyrone Theophile (2-4cool and Shane Shillingford (2-67), along with pacer Sherman Lewis (2-81) all claimed two wickets each. Volcanoes then found themselves in early trouble when experienced opener Devon Smith fell without scoring, pulling a short ball from fast bowler Keon Joseph to be caught square on the on-side by Rutherford, with only 10 runs on the board in the third over of the innings.



Red Force vs Scorpios

AROUBA, Trinidad, CMC – Fabian Allen’s superb unbeaten hundred and seamer Derval Green’s lethal burst rattled Trinidad and Tobago Red Force and put Jamaica Scorpions firmly in control of their second round encounter of the Regional four-day championship here Friday.

Allen stroked a career-best 169 not out as Scorpions converted their overnight 246 for four into an intimidating 432 all out in their first innings on the second day of the contest at the Brian Lara Stadium.

Left-arm fast bowler Obed McCoy was quite impressive on debut. Good action, good pace decent control and quite a bit of bounce. Length was a bit up and down. No swing, but good material for the coaches to work with.

Ray Joseph's action has improved significantly and now looks decent. He may have lost a little bit of pace, but he is quite a handful. Very good pace off a fairly short run up. Good line, but bowls rather short too often.

Sherfane Rutherford obviously intends to go very far, very quickly. Very good looking batsman. Haven't seen him bowl yet.

Keemo appeared out of sorts while batting.

Vishaul was solid as ever, and more enterprising than normal.
